SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Volume 20, Number 3, January 20, 1966.  ,7c per copy  TWILIGHT THEATRE  PROGRAM ON PAGE 8  Water continues  as council topic  Letters from Mrs. fiva Peterson and Mrs. Ellen Chamberlin,  two Gibsons pensioners, asking  the municipal council to ease  the cost of water as far~as they  are concerned prompted discussion at Tuesday night's meeting ending in councillors saying  they cannot differentiate between water users, thus turning  down their request.  Both letters pointed Out they  did not use much water, implying that $30 per year was too  high. Councillor Sam Fladager,.  water commissioner said the  public was not paying for water  but for a service. Chairman Wes  Hodgson said lie was sympathetic with these people.. Councillors asked the chairman to show  them where they can get cheaper water at $30 a year.  Councillor James Drummond  added that general taxation had  helped to finance the water sys-.  tern for some years and it was  time the system paid its own  way. Councillor Fred Feeney  suggested higher pensions were  apparently necessary.  As discussion progressed the  chairman thought the $30 a year  rate quite reasonable with Councillor Fladager maintaining, it  was not exorbitant". On deciding  council could not differentiate  as regards water bills, a vote  was taken and all four councillors turned down the plea contained in the letters.  Again on water, Charles English by letter asked to have the  present Farhham property water line extended closer to the  new motel in that area. Council  agreed but stipulated be would  have to place a four-inch main  in the sub-division from which  he will be able to have a one-  half inch take-off until water  expansion is realized.  Eric Prittie, representing the  Sunshine Coast Rural Development committee suggested that  council should appoint its representative to the SORJD committee. Council named: the water  commissioner, Mr. Fladager.  Mr. Prittie also obtained council's permission to allow Martin  Dayton, who made an exhaustive report to council on water,  to talk over his report with the  SCRD committee.  g  Ron Haig of Hopkins Landing  was .'elected president of Gibsons land District?

Visitors from Pender Harbour  were Markle Myers, president,  and Peter Benjafield of the Pender Harbour C of C. New members included Peter Wilson, secretary-treasurer of the school  board with Mrs. Wilson, Mrs.  Macey and Phil Lawrence, area  recreation director.  There were 39 at the meeting  the largest number for many  meetings, and. they heard the  retiring president, Mr. McHeffey thank the committee chairmen for the work they had done  during his terms of office. He  gave extra thanks to Mrs. Winn  Stewart, the 'retiring secretary  and Mr. Henniker, retiring treas  urer, also to Walt Nygren, marine   affairs   chairman   for   his  work on the breakwater: and  harbor improvement brief. Dur-  *ing his;, remarks Mr.yMcHeffey  saidThe was off the opinion there  was sufficient . ferry trafficf^to  >"i_u'n"'t\��oi'-iefrle_.''__-lI wintfei^loHg'."  He also praised the.work of the  AORfDA committee, ,'. operating  over the entire area, with support for the same , from Mr.  Myers of the Pen&er Harbour  C of C. Mr. Myers also expressed the thought that there should  be closer liaison between the  chambers of commerce. The  community was too big for local penny ante operations.  Correspondence was read concerning the cutting down of the  speed limit on the highway from  Pratt Road to Dannys Motel.  The correspondence from the  roads department would allow  the 30 mph speed limit to be  moved 500 feet from the motel  towards Pratt Road. This the  chamber did not think was sufficient for their purpose. What  the chamber asked was a speed  reduction coming from Pratt  road and not from the motel towards Pratt road. As a result  the. chamber decided to see if  the hump at Pratt Road could  be reduced which would give a  better sight approach to the  part of the highway the chamber considers should come under reduced speed.  Before turning over the president's mallet to the new president, Mr. McHeffey urged greater effort towards obtaining a  good water supply for the area  and that efforts be redoubled  for a breakwater and harbor,  improvements.

A series of 12 television specials titled The Incredible Forest, has been produced by Mac-  Millan, Bloedel and Powell Ri-  ^er Limited for showings across  Canada.  p The Incredible Forest tells the  story7of the forest products industry -��� an industry which, by  virtually any measure, is Can-'  ada's most important. The series ..', represents a landmark in  industrial film:making in British  Columbia, if not in Canada.  y It is doubtful that ever before  an industrial corporation has attempted in Canada such a com-  .prehensive portrait of an industry,1, for purely educational purposes.  ;. MacMillan, Bloedel and Powell ; River Limited undertook the  project as a purely educational  enterprise. There are few, if  any, British Columbians whose  lives are not touched directly or  indirectly by the forest products industry. It is the company's hope that those who view  the series will know more about,  and have a greater appreciation  of the industry and its economic contribution to British Colum-  ::bia'."- '"���'���'���-.  The   series   initially   will   be  televised   in   12   programs   on  Channel 8.

A- music festival for school  children, with choral groups  and soloists, is a possibility next  May, H. Klyne Headley, supervisor of music for Sechelt School  District, informed a meeting of  the-Sunshine Coast Arts Council in the school board office  Sunday afternoon.  The meeting was called to consider a report from the council's steering committee which  was adopted with minor changes. Arrangements have already  started for a general public  meeting some time in February  by H. J. Barendregt, chairman  of the  steering committee.  At the February meeting a  board of seven directors will be  named. This board will select  an advisory council to develop  the fields of interest which the  arts council will support. Youth  in the area will not be overlooked.  The purpose of the arts council ��� is to stimulate, co-ordinate  and encourage high standards in  the- arts throughout the community and to acquaint the public with the many facets of the  arts. It will also strive to encourage the development of local _ talent, creative skills and  craftsmanship and conserve the  natural and historical values of  the area.  Mr. Headley who was chairman of the meeting complimented the steering committee on  the work it had done, describing it as a tremendous piece of  work. There were 20 people  present from all sections between Port Mellon and Pender  Harbour. Membership fees suggested were $5 for a corporate  member (a business enterprise)  $2 for individual members and  $1 for students and pensioners.  Activities proposed for the  spring months include a film,  Canada on Screen to be shown  at Pender Harbour, March 17;  Sechelt, March 18, and Gibsons,  March 19.  A local art exhibit is proposed for April and drama and music in May. The music festival  will be the music event and with  it there will be in the afternoon  a musical work in the form of a  stage event such as a part of a  Gilbert and Sullivan work. For  the evening event Mr. Headley  proposed that the CBC chamber  orchestra present a concert.  A floating member of the arrangements committee will be  Phil Lawrence, area recreation  director, who will be open to  receiving names of individuals  who would best serve on the  board of directors. Mr. Lawrence can be reached at Sechelt.  tropics now  lure for: Ben Long  New babies  Future teachers to meet  Nearly 200 high school students from 78 communities  throughout B.C. will attend the  eighth annual Future Teachers  Clubs Conference January 28-29  at the University of B.C.

The Princess, a OPR summer Alaskan  cruise ship, was chartered" to  Princess Cruises Inc. of Seattle during the winter to make  10 trips.  She accommodates 357 people, travels at 23 knots by turbo-  electric twin screw propellors  and on rounding Gape Flattery  at 5:30 a.m. on the Monday  morning we ran into heavy weather with winds up to 50 knots  which provided some fun in the  dining room which can seat 145  at a time.  The ship's master, Capt.  George Black and I had several  mutual friends in the CPR, CNR  and old Union line and as a result spent many' hours on the  bridge, the wheelhouse and  chart room. The chief engineer  and chief officer were also old  shipmates of friends of mine  and this also helped make the  trip more interesting.  The  second  day  at  sea  was  lumpy but it  gradually  abated  as the weather became warmer.  Arriving    at    Long    Beach    on  schedule  Dec.   2  resulted in  a  boisterous welcome in beautiful  weather with spouting fireboats,  escort launches, navy ships, TV  stars and a 42-piece band providing   a   glorious   Bienvenidos  Amigos.    Among   the   greeters  were Mr.  Laura  Alvarez  Mor-  hpy, Mexican consul;  Hon. Edwin  W.  Wade,  mayor  of. Long  Beach;  J. G. Bisson,  Canadian  consul-general;   officials   of  the  Princess Cruises, Kasey Rogers,  the Julie Anderson of TV's Peyton Place with Barbara Parkins  Julie's daughter Betty.  We sailed from Long Beach at  10 a.m. Dec. 3 with Puerto Val-  larta our first port of call and  a full passenger list. As we  steamed south the temperature  climbed and out came shorts  and loud shirts. The most popular end of the ship outside the  bars and dining room was the.  forward deck where one could  watch porpoise and flying fish  sometimes in their hundreds.  Farther south and in warmer  water  turtles  paddled  lazily.  As an early riser I made a  tour of the deck a few times for  exercise (10 times around, one  T7;niiIe)^aM-*o^'wQ&_d aiok.miss-  any thing. Coffee was available  from a big urn from 6 a.m. until breakfast and many had a  cup each time they made a turn  of the deck. Sometimes before  sunrise the deck thermometer  registered in the 70's.  Our first call, Puerto Vallar-  ta, is a remote, semi-tropical,  village with thatched roof dwellings clinging to long slopes of  mountains surrounding the bay.  It presented a beautiful picture.  To get to the village one must  go by" jeep. Our arrival was historical as. it was the first time  a passenger ship had entered  the harbor since 1704 when the  Portugese sailed in with settlers. An improvised small dock  : had been prepared and we were  taken ashore by launches.  Tourists tend to forget some  ports of call are communities,  dating back to 1500 and clinging  to old customs. Cobblestone  roads are repaired by hand and  open ditches and sewers are  common. Opulence with plush  hotels can be on one side of the  street and hovels with dirt  floors on the other.  I purchased a few items at  each port of call as Christmas  presents and it was fun using  my limited Spanish. After struggling with the words two or  three times the clerk in good  English would say "You are doing fine," and laugh.  Next morning we sailed for  Manzanillo on a shiny blue sea  that defies description. You have  to see its calm gentle swell to  believe it. Manzanillo has the  old Mexican flavor, a west coast  seaport since the 16th century.  Larger that Puerto Vallarta it  has good docking facilities. The  ship was a hotel in port so after a shore session we would return aboard for meals. Drinking;  shore water was not advised so  we drank tequila (cactus juice)  or Planter's punch!

Unity in the Community gets things done  The roads problem  On reading 1947 copies of the Coast News one comes up with  the definite idea that area roads of that period were really something to talk about.  For instance rural"hxail service in the Gibsons area was cancelled owing to road conditions. Doctor Inglis and the VON announced they would attend emergency cases only. Roberts Creek  pupils could .not get to "Gibsons so.the school board decided to  send the school to them at Roberts Creek, with classes at Kewpie  Camp. The. ride toj Roberts, Creek was described, as a nerve  wracking three to four hour ,trip. ;  Today we have chambers of commerce complaining about  the condition of the main highway. The roads minister realizes  something will have to be done with it but is apparently not  ready yet. In the meantime we have stories in the Vancouvt,  press that the government is purchasing properties along an  upper route leading to Horseshoe Bay. This would allow the present route to become a one way highway in the opposite direction to the new upper level highway.  Traffic on these roads can only lead to or come from Bowen  Island, Langdale and the Squamish area. Along with improved  service to Langdale and from Earl's Cove to Saltery Bay leading  to Powell River, it does make sense for the government to be  not too much concerned about the Sunshine Coast Highway when  they have greater plans for it. It is becoming more generally  known there will be a bypass road via, the North Road from  Hopkins area, coming out to the present highway not too far  irom the Peninsula hotel. As far as Squamish country is concerned, unless an interior route is blazed not too much can be done  ^with the present shoreline highway.  i Assuming all this is near the truth and that present roads  in the area are passable ��� if not perfect ���- our present highway  3s a long, long way from the highway of 1947 which"was described  as impassable. However it should be explained that what slight  improvement was made in 1947 to the road from Gibsons to Sechelt with the aid of trucks of T. R. Godfrey & Co., Eric Inglis  and Foucette Bros., was the result of a delegation from the Gibsons Landing and District Board of Trade. These trucks were  pressed into action because of the delegation's presentation of  the case for the area.  The Coast News is not suggesting that Hon. Phil Gaglardi  be approached by a strong delegation but he should be receiving  reminders, if not weekly at least monthly, that there is a highway in this area requiring some attention. We are a long way  from the 1947 highway and the traffic of that period. Take a  look at what the intervening 19 years has done to the area and  estimate what it will be like 19 years from now. Many more  roads will be needed.  Hall closet techniques  A news item leads to conjecture regarding one of the chief  needs in many homes. The item says that a company which  builds suitcases and bags is going to conduct a course in packing.  We need such adult education.  When the family is getting ready for a picnic, or a weekend, or to go to the summer cottage it's always touch and go  to get everything in the car.  But we refer to another matter. The hall closet in most homes  is the eighth wonder of the world. Now if one member of the  family, preferably Mother, could take an evening course in How  to Double the Storage Capacity of the Hall Closet, it will have  practical value. Hall closets are meant for outdoor wraps but  practically they take the place of the old-fashioned attic.  It hadn't occurred to us before but now we see a value in  adult education. If a man can get his golf clubs without pawing  through snare drums, baseball equipment, tennis rackets, solving machines, vacuum cleaners and card tables, it will be a  forward step. Knowing how to pack clothes efficiently is worthwhile, but after all, clothes are easy compared to the items mentioned.  Canadian chartered banks  need freedom to compete if  the financial system of this  country is not to be greatly  weakened, according to G.  Arnold Hart, chairman and  president of the Bank of Montreal.  Mr. Hart told the bank's  148th annual meeting that the  draft banking legislation introduced last year fails to take  into account the vast changes  that have occurred in recent  years in the structure of the  Canadian financial system and  the environment in which it  operates.  Shareholders also . heard R.  D. Mulholland, vice-president  and chief general manager,, report a record year's business,  with assets of almost $5 billion at October 31.  Mr. Hart, in recommending  removal of the 6 percent ceiling on loan interest rates and  advocating broader lending  power for the banks, said, "I  am not seeking to build a more  powerful banking system at the  expense of others in the financial community.  - "The financial system of this  country will be greatly weakened if the slow erosion of the  position of the banks is allowed to continue," he stated.  "What is required is the freedom to compete, not to dominate."  He said it was anomalous  that, while the banks were  limited to a 6 percent ceiling  on the rate they may charge  for loans, institutions competing with the banks are paying  more than this for deposits ���  clear evidence of distortions of  Bank Act restrictions and of  financial markets by present  Bank Act restrictions and of  the need for change.  The changes already proposed fail to face up to the fact  that, while the legislative restrictions on the operations of  the banks were designed primarily to protect the public interest and to facilitate monetary management, they . no  longer do so.  "By inhibiting the growth of  the banks relative to other financial intermediaries: which  are not similarly subject to  central control, they weaken  and dilute that control.  "And, by preventing the  banks from offering a full range  of services at competitive  prices,, they force the public  to seek more expensive accommodation elsewhere," Mr. Hart  said.  The task of revising the Bank  Act "should surely command  a high priority when Parliament reconvenes. Moreover, I  would hope that we have seen  the last of the timid approach  to banking legislation displayed  in the draft bill introduced this  year and that we will have instead a new Bank Act which  really meets the demonstrated  needs of the community at  large.  "Nothing less than this will  do if the banks are to play  their full part in the growth  and development of the Canadian economy," Mr. Hart  stated.  Noting extremely keen competition for deposits, he said,  "A point of view has been  growing up, even among those  who should know better, that  . . . about the only thing that  really mattered was the rate  of interest offered." In fact,  he pointed out, it was'* alto--  gether too comfortable an assumption that all so-called "financial institutions" were equally creditworthy.  .  He emphasized that deposit  rates, exceeding the "quite attractive rates now offered by  banks," do not reflect the  liquidity and quality made possible by the carefully structured pattern of assets of the  chartered banks.  "The business of lending  money requires not only skill  and experience, but also the  time and money needed to investigate the risk, plus accep- ���  tance of the fact that investigation is indeed necessary,"  Mr. Mulholland continued.  "I suggest that just because  TS  Minute message  WHO  WAS  JESUS  CHRIST?  "As far as I'm concerned  Jesus Christ was a good man,  but no more. His crucifixon  was a tragedy." Have you ever  heard someone express thoughts  like these?  Christ once asked his disciples "Whom say men that I  am?" After a variety of answers, Christ asked pointedly  "Whom say ye that I am?"  Peter promptly replied "Thou  art the Christ, son of the living  God."  Christ responded significantly. "Blessed art thou Simon,  for flesh and blood hath not  revealed this unto thee, but my  father which is in heaven." In  other words, a man must have  an experience with God to fully  comprehend the divinity of  Christ. If Christ were indeed a  good man, and claimed himself to be the Son of God, then  his claim was true.  Because Christ was the Son  of God, his sacrificial death  potentially frees the human  race of sin. No sinner is too  hopeless for Christ to save  Christ invites all to receive per-  ICE CHARACTERISTICS  Following characteristics of  ice and load limits are worth  remembering.  Slush ice is about one-half  as strong as clear blue ice. River ice is 15% weaker than  lake ice. Blue lake ice, 3 feet  thick, should support 110 tons.  Sudden application of brakes  increases weight pressure of a  vehicle, especially at the front  wheels. Continuous travel over  the same route on ice will  weaken it. Removal of snow  (insulation) from ice surface  in winter will usually increase  ice thickness during subsequent  frost.  Safe loads: 2" of ice, 1 man  on foot; 3", group, in single  file; V/2, automobile (2 tons  gross); 12", heavy truck |(2  tons gross); 25", 45 tons and  36", 110 tons.  sonal forgiveness ��� "He that  cometh unto me I will in no  wise cast out." ��� Pastor J.

THE COAST NEWS  19 VK1IIN 11,11  The fifth annual meeting of  Roberts Creek Credit Union  was held at Gibsons Landing  when President Bob Burns gave  an interesting talk. Jack Burns  is managing field director.  The ball field at Port Mellon  was converted into an ice skating rink for benefit of children  there.  Conditions of Sechelt Peninsula roads was so bad residents  are organizing volunteer crews  to make repairs. An appeal  has been sent the roads minister.  J. Henniker in charge of the  Bank of Montreal at Gibsons  has announced a change in  opening days to each Tuesday  and Friday at the request of  the Board of Trade.  Prompt action by George  Frith and Fire Chief Eric Inglis prevented a serious fire in  the tenement building owned  by C. P. Ballentine. A smouldering chimney fire in the Mr. and  Mrs. A. Lane apartment ignited the wall at 3 a.m.  Ratepayers complained to  George Weir minister of education that election of Sechelt  School District trustees was  undemocratic in that the lowest man in the poll G. Marsden  was elected chairman.  Mr. and Mrs. J. Connor of  Gibsons Landing celebrated  their 40th wedding anniversary.  Since receiving its charter  in May the Community Memorial Recreation society with  Leslie Peterson chairman, has  obtained the lease to the playground property (now Kinsmen  Park) from the Anglican church  and has cleared away a considerable amount of stone.  Short-term funds have been  freely available outside the  banking system, too many borrowers have enaeci up with a  disproportionate amount of  their indebtedness at too short  a term in relation to the nature  of their operations.  "Such   borrowers   have   also  become overly dependent upon  the vagaries of the short-term  money market which basically  lacks the continuity of accommodation which is provided by  bank financing, on the one  hand, and by proper placement  of/long-term securities in the  ' public market, on the other.  "Thus, tight-rope investing  for the lenders is also tightrope financing by borrowers,"  Mr. Mulholland stated.  N.

Two tips may prove helpful.  You can use almost any kind  of cooking utensil to make a  good stew but be sure it has  a tight fitting' cover, and is  heavy enough to prevent  scorching. Also never let your  stew cook rapidly because the  gentlest of simmering is essential for success.  Ingredients: 2 lbs. stewing  beef, 2 tablespoons shortening,  4 cups boiling' water, 2 Oxo  beef cubes or 3 teaspoons Oxo  beef bouillon, 1 teaspoon lemon  juice, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire, Vs teaspoon garlic powder, 1 onion sliced, 2 bay  leaves, 2 teaspoons salt, Vz  teaspoon pepper, . V4 teaspoon  paprika, daslh of allspice, 4  carrots sliced, 1 cup cubed  turnips, or celery and 6 onions  peeled.  Method: Thoroughly brown  meat on all sides in hot fat.  Remove pan from heat, add  water, crumbled Oxo cubes,  lemon juice, Worcestershire,  garlic, onion, and seasoning.  Simmer covered 2 hours; stir  occasionally. . Add vegetables  and cubed potatoes, if desired.  Continue cooking 20 minutes.  The gravy should be partially  thickened with a paste of 3  tablespoons flour in V4 cup  water and cooked 10 minutes  in the liquid which should be  drained off the stew. Serves  6 to 8.  MANY  MORE   HOTELS  The number of Western-style  hotels n Japan during the past  10 years has increased 90 percent, from 67 to 127, and the  number of rooms in such hotels  has gone up 198 percent, from  4,262 to 12,592, according to  the B.C. Automobile Association.  Remember when income tax  was paid only by people who  could afford to.  -**-L"--_-'V"  P  iiii'il up  in passing  4 regional RDA offices announced  Promissory    note:     political  promises to provide more are  also promises to tax more.  *     *     *  One of the nicest things to  happen to cooks was the introduction of non-stick fry pans,  a few years ago. Highly touted'  as fat-free (the plastic coating  applied to the pans eliminated  the need for fat and cooking  oils) it was believed that the  revolutionary pans would have  strong appeal for the overweight and" cholesterol - con -  scious. Somehow they didn't  quite come off. In fact, after  a brief initial flurry, sales dropped like a badly made souffle.  This type of cookware is  coated with Fluon plastic which  creates a surface so smooth  and slippery even sticky  scrambled eggs slither right out  of the pan without help. Should  they burn, the charred remains  are readily removed and the  pan cleaned simply by sponging with sudsy water . . . never  scouring.  It was decided, therefore, to  change the sales approach to  emphasize the "scour-free"  qualities. Sales soared! Today,  fry pans, sauce pans, muffin  tins and dutch ovens are just  a few of the fast-growing num-.  ber Of items being given the  non-stick treatment. No one  knows where the list will end.  The success of the words non-  scour over fat-free seems to  prove that modern cooks are  more interested in saving labor  than calories.  * *      *  Appearances deceive; a dollar bill still looks like it did  15 years ago.  *       *       *  "I knocked over a man. He  admitted it was his fault as  he had been run over before."  This is a highway howler,  written by. a motorist on his  insurance claim as his explanation for the. accident in which  he was involved.  The B.C. Automobile Association has collected other gems  entered innocently by  drivers:  "A cow wandered into my  car. I was afterwards informed that the cow was half-witted."  "The other man altered his  mind so I had to run into him.':  ''Dog on the road applied  brakes  causing a skid."  "I ran into a shop window  and sustained injuries to my  wife."  "A lamp-post bumped the car  damaging it in two  Places "  : :��� accident was due to th��  other man narrowly missint,  me."  * *      *  Some tourists look at scenery,  others see it.

Hundreds of disabled in British Columbia each year require these services from the Foundation. The provincial goal this year is $275,000.  Major organizational changes  leading to the decentralization  of federal ARDA administration have been announced by  forestry minister Maurice  Sauve.  In order to develop closer  liaison with provincial governments in implementing the federal-provincial Rural Development Agreement, four regional  offices of the federal ARDA  organization are being established as follows: western region ��� with headquarters at  Regina, Saskatchewan^ compris-  ng the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan  and Manitoba; Atlantic region  ��� with headquarters at Amherst, Nova Scotia, comprising  the provinces of Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island,  Nova Scotia and New Brunswick; and the regions of Quebec and Ontario, with headquarters in Ottawa for the present.  The Civil Service commission  of Canada has appointed Lee  E. Pratt as director for the  western region; Ronald R. Mclntyre, director f��r the Atlantic region; Paul L. Bois-  clair, director for the Quebec  region, and Richard C. Hodges,  director for the Ontario region.  Messrs. Mclntyre, Boisclair and  Hodges take up their new  duties immediately, while Mr.  Pratt is expected to move to  Regina early in April.  In addition to the establishment of regional offices, a director  of  planning  and  policy  LEGAL  COURT   OF   REVISION  NOTICE is hereby given that  the Court of Revision respecting the 1966 assessment roll for  the Comox Assessment District  will be held as follows:���  School District 47 (Powell River), at Powell River, B.C., on  Wednesday, February 9th, 1966,  at 10:00 o'clock in the forenoon,  in the Provincial Government  Building.  Dated at Courtenay this 12th  day of January, 1966.  G. L. HAMILTON,  Provincial Assessor.  is to be appointed, at Ottawa,  to more effectively co-ordinate  the regional activities. The  Civil Service commission is currently recruiting for this position.  The Western and Atlantic  ARDA regional offices will be  staffed by an administrative  group and a number, of professional and technical specialists in economics and other  fields. These offices will also  have authority to approve certain rural development projects  for the region.  This decentralization of federal ARDA responsibility makes-  possible a close working contact  with provincial ARDA authorities and should result in expediting approval of programs  and projects submitted by the  provinces. It should also provide for a greatly expanded exchange of information useful in  formulating more effective  rural development plans and  programs under the Federal-  Provincial Rural Development  Agreement.  In the development of rural  programs the ARDA Regional  Directors will co-ordinate their  activities with those of other  federal  agencies in  the areas.

After the death of her husband in 1943, 'Mrs. Aberhart  made her home with her daughter, Mrs. James Cooper, first  in Vancouver and later in Redrooffs. Two years ago, while on  a visit to her daughter, Mrs.  Charles McNutt of Calgary,  Mrs. Aberhart was taken to  hospital where she remained for  the last two years of her life.  Redooffs will best remember  this frail but stately little lady  graciously entertaining her  guests in the lovely lounge of  the Cooper home in which hangs  a life size oil portrait of the late  William Aberhart.  Burial services were held in  Calgary, but Mrs. Aberhart's  body was brought to Vancouver  for interment in the family plot  at Forest Lawn CeAaetery.

Titled This is Canada's Prescription Drug Industry, the  booklet reports on: size and  scope, benefits to Canadians,  the cost of drugs and drug prices, research, safety, marketing,  patents and brand names.  The booklet notes: Canada has  the third lowest drug prices in  terms of hours of labor among  the western world's eight manufacturing nations.  From each dollar spent on  prescriptions, the manufacturer  receives only 37^ cents to cover his cost of production, marketing, research, tax and profit.  About 83 percent of pharmaceuticals sold in Canada are  manufactured  in   this   country.  The Dominion Bureau of Statistics lists 171 individual pharmaceutical manufacturing establishments.  Total sales are about $200 million; nearly 11,000 Canadians  are employed by the industry;  salaries total more than $50 million; manufacturing activity has  grown to 20 times the 1920 level.  On the question of safety, the  Phone 886-2622  booklet says this: "While the  human eye cannot see safety in  a drug, it can pick out the name  of the manufacturer on the label. |. This recognition of a well-  known company by the physician and pharmacist is the great  est guarantee the public has  of receiving the safest product."  The book is being distributed  to doctors and pharmacists  across the country.

ROBERT  WILLIAM  WEIR  CARRALL, MD  When Canadians celebrate  their national holiday on July  1, they should give part of the  thanks to a pioneer British Columbia statesmen, Dr. Robert  W. W. Carrall.  He was one of the province's  first three senators and it was  his bill, 12 years after Confederation, which made the  holiday official. There had been  previous attempts. But many  parts of Canada still opposed  the national union and didn't  see it as a cause for celebration. Passage of Carrall's bill  was the first legal ruling that  was accepted by banks and  other commercial ventures. The  "Act To Make The First Day  Of July A Public Holiday By  The Name Of Dominion Day"  was passed May 15, 1879.  Robert Carrall was born  near Woodstock, Ontario, in  1839. He was educated at Toronto and Montreal. Graduated  from McGill as a doctor in  1859, he practised in Canada  but soon found himself a surgeon in the northern army in  the U.S. Civil War.  In 1866 he was back under  the British flag, practising at  Naniamo. Two years later he  moved to Williams Creek seeking Barkerville gold rush prosperity and he became Cariboo  representative in the Legislative Council of the United  Colony of British Columbia, remaining in office until 1871. He  was an ardent unionist and in'  1870 was a delegate to Ottawa  for talks that led this province  into Confederation in 1871. He  was immediately appointed one  of the first senators from B.C.  He died in office in Eastern  Canada in 1879.  Pender soars  The teams visited Elphie on  Friday, Jan. 14 for basketball  games.

"%_W_t__h M M WSM  w^wr Wm? -mrm.  CAan4zdtv^_%  Can a totem pole be read?  A totem pole, the term commonly applied to the carved  wooden posts formerly erected  by the Indians of the Northwest Coast from Alaska to the  state of Washington, consisted  of a number of independent  figures, one above the other,  each referring to some incident  in the past of the chief for,  whom it was erected. The  figures were shown according  to a series of accepted stylism.  For example, the raven had  a long straight beak, the owl  a curved one, and the beaver  had a cross-hatched tail and  a stick in its mouth. A totem  pole could thus be "read," that  is, the individual figures were  recognizable, but the implication of each was entirely different since each depended  upon some. .incident connected  with the ancestral records of  the family.  Actually, therefore, the full  meaning of a totem pole could  be understood only when the  figures, upon it were correlated  with the incidents of the relevant myth or myths. The peak  of totem pole construction was  from 1860 to 1880. During that  period some poles were erected that were more than 90 feet  in height.  Who are the Trail Riders of  the Canadian Rockies?  This is the name of an organization that was founded in  1923 by John Murray Gibbon  when he was general publicity  agent for the Canadian Pacific  Railway. It continues to be  sponsored by the CPR and now  has a membership of about  2500. It. aims to encourage  horseback riding over the more  remote trails ;of the Rockies  near Banff, maintenance of old  trails and construction of new  ones, an interest in wildlife  and the promotion of legislation designed to preserve to  the horse-riding public free access by trail to mountain, lake,  river and forest.  The first trail ride took place  in 1924. Until 1945 the practice  was to break camp each morning and ride into a new campsite at nightfall. ' Since then,  however, riders have made use  of a base camp from which  they set out on new trails daily  and return to camp at nightfall  for supper, singsong and camp-  fire entertainment. The base  camp is composed of skin and  canvas tipis made by the Stoney  IncLtans.  Where is the Hozomeen range?  It is the central range of the  Cascade Mountains in British  Columbia. It lies between the  Skagit and Okanagart Ranges  and constitutes a transition both  in elevation and relief between  these two. The general level of  the peaks is around 7,500 feet  but towards the Okanagan  Range there are many summits  that exceed 8000 feet'in'height.

Its objective will be  $275,000. I would like to congratulate the Kinsmen Clubs of British Columbia who, together  with other affiliated groups,  make this once a year appeal  possible.  "This will be the 21st anniversary of Mothers' Marches  the proceeds of which are required to further the foundation's vital services such as  speech and hearing, social and  medical rehabilitation, equipment, vocational rehabilitation  and   other   services.   Although  oral polio vaccine has prevented new cases, there are still  hundreds of those disabled by  poliomyelitis to be helped back  to a normal and useful life  through rehabilitation.  I heartily commend this  year's Mothers' March and confidently expect the people of  this province to oversubscribe  the $275,000 objective.

Wallace,  let's look back to see how  far we've come-  *     *     *  One hundred years ago today  there was Victoria and there  was New Westminster and  there was Barkerville. And  aside from these three main  pockets of . population, there  were a score of mining, camps,  a few scattered agricultural  areas ��� and not much else.  The press of that day gives  a fairly clear picture of life  in the colonies. Barkerville's  Cariboo Sentinel had shut down  for the winter. (It was 33 degrees below zero there in early  January and few miners were  taking out any gold. Many of  the miners in fact were spending the, winter in the two coast  towns or had travelled even  farther south, to California���  whence they had come.) But it  was livelier on the coast.  *       *       *  Jan. 1, 1866 the Daily British  Colonist at Victoria was editorially lamenting the financial  catastrophe of the past twelve  months and referring to the  current scene "the winter of  our discontent," with some  bright spots. . ��� ���  "The Great War in the American Republic has ceased . . ..  and human  slavery  is forever  Admission  $1.50 Single  $2 Couple  GIBSONS   LEGION   HALL  DANCE  Saturday, Jan. 22  Primarily  Rythm  and Blues  9 to 1 a.m.  Entertainment by THE DRIFTERS  ���__*^_*^*,*^*_^_'-_^-���  YOUR NAME IS WANTED!

The Lions are currently  fourth in their circuit. _  Despite the fact both clubs  had been idle for five weeks  due to the Christmas lay-off  and inclement weather, it was  a . crisp, well-played soccer  game.  The Lions appeared to have a  territorial edge in the early going and opened the scoring at  the ten minute mark. Teddy  Joe fired the equalizer at 35  minutes and it was 1-1 at the  intermission.  In the second half it was the  Rangers who were the stronger  of the two clubs as they carried  the play to the Lions. The fleet  centre-forward Joe potted two  more goals to fashion the hat  trick and left winger Doug El-  son scored what proved to be  the winner 20 minutes from full  time.  The locals resume league play  this Sunday when they travel to  Vancouver for a meeting- with  Malkin and Pinton at Jones  Park. The Rangers current win-  loss record stands at 10 and 2.

They  had come from San Francisco  with their trailer and spent the  five wintry months at a secluded beach: After touring with  them they went ashore.  An hour later they returned  and invited me on a tour of  Manzanillo. They had a beautiful spot at a sandy cove with  the , trailer parked under a  thatched carport from which  was hanging,a bunch of bananas, a 42 pound stalk which cost  10 pesos, or 80 cents. After being returned to the ship I wandered along the shore and found  the language barrier to toe quite  frustrating. The waters abound'  with sailfish, dolphin, marlin,  shark and other varieties but  time did not permit my bringing some of them in. but I did  see some fine specimens.  Aboard ship you never went  to bed hungry having a big  smorgasbord available at 10:30  p.m. each night.  Our next port of call was Aca-  pulco and what was better than  sleeping on deck in a warm temperature on a reclining chair  with a full December moon overhead. As we journeyed south  the air became sweeter and  sticky but while steaming there  was a pleasant breeze.  Acapulco was founded in 1550  and has one of the finest harbors in the world. It is a combination of the Riviera, Florida  and the West Indies and more.  Entering the harbor at sunset  was an awe-inspiring sight and  our three days and nights there  makes one want to return to its  golden beaches, markets and  night spots.  I swam or played in the water every day on various fine  beaches and visited some of the  fine hotels one of which had a  Pihata celebration in honor of.  the ship's arrival and where I  ate too much hot Mexican food.  Driving back to the ship by  taxi was hilarious when a pas';  senger who spoke some Spanish  ��� tried to find out what time it  was arid involved the 300 pound,  taxi driver and his fares iii"  paroxysms of laughter,1 forcing  the cab'to stop:' '.',  Sailing night was festive with  bands and many native youngsters diving for coins. .They  stored them in their mouths until they had 'sufficient to send  them shorewards. Lines were  cast off and we felt sorry at'  having to say adios amigos to  Acapulco.  We headed north to Mazatlan  on a peninsula on the southern  tip of Baja California. Jack Mc-  Nutt, whom many readers will  know, took me on a tour of the  town and later stopped at his  home where his three daughters  16, 14 and 12 years old awaited  a trip to see the Barco Grande  (big ship). This was arranged  for 10 a.m. next morning and  aided by the lady who wanted to  know the time in last night's  taxi, the girls were shown over  the ship liking particularly the  dining room and wheelhouse.  On looking back I had not  realized how far Acapulco was  east of Vancouver in its southern latitude. It is actually south  of Winnipeg thus giving us a  two hour difference in time^  Mazatlan being our last stop we  sailed in the evening for Long  Beach.  The ship docked at 9 a.m. Dec.  17 and some friends aboard had  relatives meeting them and they  wanted to drive me to the airport. Arriving there it was founn  there would be no plane that  day so I was dined and housed  that night with wonderful people. Next morning we had a tour  of the San Gabriel Freeway  where traffic really moves, later  a special lunch then a drive tb  the airport at about 5 p.m. arriving in Vancouver at 9:15 p.m.  with an hour stopover in Seattle  To quote the words of President McDonald of the Princess  Cruises, New York has long had  a lock grip on Caribbean cruises yet west coast people, the  greatest tourists on earth, now  have available leisurely visits  to west coast ports in Mexico to  see some fascinating spots.  As a passenger on the first  cruise I am sure this venture  will prove a boon to Canada, the  United States and Mexico. I  wish all those associated with it  the best of success and I hope  to make the voyage again soon.
